Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County, has acknowledged allegations of a relationship with Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor in Donald Trump's election interference case.
According to a hundred-page court filing, "Defendants have done nothing to establish an actual conflict of interest, nor have they shown that, in the handling of the case, District Attorney Willis or Special Prosecutor Wade have acted out of any personal or financial motivation."
Willis hired Wade in 2021 to investigate whether the former president and his associates attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, as reported by the Associated Press. Trump is among the 19 individuals indicted in the case.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee will decide on what comes next for the Georgia interference case and is scheduled for an evidentiary hearing on the allegations on February 15.
